Overview

Credentials is a high-level base class used by Google's API client libraries to represent the authentication when connecting to an API. In most cases, it is subclassed by API-specific credential classes that can be instantiated by clients.

Options

Credentials classes are configured with options that dictate default values for parameters such as scope and audience. These defaults are expressed as class attributes, and may differ from endpoint to endpoint. Normally, an API client will provide subclasses specific to each endpoint, configured with appropriate values.

Note that these options inherit up the class hierarchy. If a particular options is not set for a subclass, its superclass is queried.

Some older users of this class set options via constants. This usage is deprecated. For example, instead of setting the AUDIENCE constant on your subclass, call the audience= method.

Example

class MyCredentials < Google::Auth::Credentials
  # Set the default scope for these credentials
  self.scope = "http://example.com/my_scope"
end

# creds is a credentials object suitable for Google API clients
creds = MyCredentials.default
creds.scope  # => ["http://example.com/my_scope"]

class SubCredentials < MyCredentials
  # Override the default scope for this subclass
  self.scope = "http://example.com/sub_scope"
end

creds2 = SubCredentials.default
creds2.scope  # => ["http://example.com/sub_scope"]

Constructor Details

#initialize(keyfile, options = {}) ⇒ Credentials

Creates a new Credentials instance with the provided auth credentials, and with the default values configured on the class.

Parameters:

  • keyfile (String, Hash, Signet::OAuth2::Client)

    The keyfile can be provided as one of the following:

    • The path to a JSON keyfile (as a +String+)
    • The contents of a JSON keyfile (as a +Hash+)
    • A +Signet::OAuth2::Client+ object
  • options (Hash) (defaults to: {})

    The options for configuring the credentials instance. The following is supported:

    • +:scope+ - the scope for the client
    • +"project_id"+ (and optionally +"project"+) - the project identifier for the client
    • +:connection_builder+ - the connection builder to use for the client
    • +:default_connection+ - the default connection to use for the client
